We visited LaVenture while staying a night at the Saint George.
At check in, we were informed that if seated at the bar, entrees were half off for the month. I'm guessing they are needing to up the interest in the restaurant and possibly overcome some of the mixed reviews (if it wasn't for the promotion, we'd likely gone elsewhere).
Menu is limited, but we both found something interesting. I was surprised by the lack of vegetarian/vegan entrees on the menu (especially given that this is Marfa). I'm sure they'll accommodate needs, but some would rather not have to ask.
I ordered the snapper, and my wife had a veggie pizza and Cesar salad. Everything was good. The snapper was cooked about perfect, and the side (rice) was great. The pizza and salad were also tasty (pizza had a nice mix of veggies). Now, don't think that this is a substitute for the Pizza Foundation!
The service was just ok. Waters weren't refilled and I wasn't asked if I needed another drink.
All that said, given the special, it made for a nice dinner at a steal of a price. At regular price, I would have likely been more disappointed with the service, and only given them a 3 (so, their scheme worked!).
